Ava Chair by Lazar

ava chair part two

The Ava chair is for talking and tv. It might not strike you as a long term chair but could certainly last a whole movie; something light like a comedy. White in the room would bring the chair to the foreground. Wood surfaces would stabilize the orange and make for softer transitions. Either way, as the star of the show or as background support, the Ava chair holds its own.

wirth chair

Wirth is a German word for head of family, master of household, provider. The Wirth Chair belongs in a quiet, light filled space – a foyer, piano room, gallery or perhaps even the patio. With its delicate curves and stone like look, the seat is a place for finding balance, a place for contemplation. When it’s time to retreat, as the family head or otherwise, the Wirth Chair is the only company you need.

When you see or hear about the chair,
allow it to take on the shape of any object you’re ready to start dialogue with.

I say ‘chair’ but I speak of every object in the room.
I speak of the table,
I speak of the bed
I speak of books
I speak of you.

recalibration

This is recalibration. It’s the practice of rebalancing the living space so that it resonates with the head space. Changes like this happen weekly in my house. If I feel stuck, stagnant, overwhelmed by my mind or just simply need a release, recalibration is my medicine.

“As a person’s self image changes, he or she is able to put away or dispose of objects that no longer reflect who they are, and acquire or make others. Thus, where we live becomes a kind of stage set onto which our self-image is projected…The house interior for most people – unlike the structure itself – is rarely wholly fixed or finished. Like the exploration of self, the arrangement of the domestic interior is often in the process of becoming.” House as a Mirror of Self | 1995
